Pippa Small does gorgeous fine jewellery but if you like the look more than the price, she also offers very pretty demi-fine pieces.
This ring is vermeil (sterling silver plated with gold) and set with an agate. Her site notes, “The agate Rina ring is hand made in Kabul by the men and women artisans of the Turquoise Mountain Foundation. Turquoise Mountain was founded by HRH The Price of Wales to revive historic areas and traditional crafts, to provide jobs, skills and a renewed sense of pride. Training and employing young people in meaningful creative jobs is vitally important now in Afghanistan when the young desperately need hope and a sense of purpose in a beautiful country tragically caught up in violence and conflict.”
The ring sells for US$370.
